Featured Events:


An update for COVID-19:  we take concerns for the impact of COVID-19 & ask that everyone take dedicated precautions in the wake of our current situation. To which, all efforts for The Metro Underground, Metro Events, & Underground Parties have been suspended until further notice.


With regard to Metro Calendars:  The Metro does not support any underground activity while the greater community remains in quarantine. So we will not list any active functions until we can safely emerge from the global crisis. Until then, please be well, stay healthy, & keep the fires burning bright!  Thank you, Richard A.D.

The DC Fetish Ball (DCFetishBall): We've been locked in the purgatory of Covid for over 6 months yet as a nation we're no further along than when we started. As your producer, I see no way we can proceed with efforts for this year's Ball. So I'm sure it comes as no surprise, but I'm cancelling any & all actions to host this year's event. At this point, we can only look toward the future & see what the days ahead might bring.  Thank you, Richard A.D.


Remembrance from last year's epic ball (please note: the following video has been marked as 'age appropriate' so you may need to be logged in to either Google, Gmail, or Youtube for viewing).


Krampusnaught DC (MetroEvents): One of DC's greatest nights for artistic expression, talented performance, family fun, & revelry for all. Unfortunately, as with everything else, the decision has been made to cancel this years event. Thank you.


May (2021):


Memorial Day Weekend (2021) - Fetish Factory Road Trip (FetishFactory): Due to COVID Quarantine, the Fetish Factory Anniversary Weekend has been postponed until Memorial Day 2021.


Offering  5 Days, 9 Parties, for a full hotel takeover! The Metro Underground takes to the road for an event of epic proportion! We're on our way to Ft. Lauderdale for the Fetish Factory 25th Anniversary Weekend (possibly the biggest, baddest, & most amazing fetish event in North America). The Metro & Friends will be there in force as DC travels to Florida for an unbelievable time not to be missed! We welcome you to join us...
